The Single Person’s Christmas

Apologies for not posting a blog for some time. I have been amassing a Twitter following, starting with 17 but sure to burst till its full power is reached. Soon this budding author shall have armies of hundreds in Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Middle Earth…! All right, maybe not that last one. As the Christmas season nears, I think it’s been the first one in a long time that I’ve been single for the holidays. But there are perks to that as well as deep sadness of the memories of girlfriends past. So let me share with you all that!

  • Con: I don’t have a significant other to buy a gift for.
  • Pro:  I don’t have a significant other to buy a gift for! Huzzah for stingy people!
  • Con: No-one to kiss under the mistletoe. (Not that I ever actually did that, as I don’t care where I kiss someone should I do so.)
  • Pro:  Bah, who am I kidding. I never did it anyway. And besides, if I wanted to, I’m no longer limited to one. 😉
  • Con: No legitimate possible snuggle partners.
  • Pro:  Ha-ha! Now I have the blankets all to myself. You won’t even be able to see me under this cozy awesomeness.
  • Con: I don’t get as much of a kick out of romantic love songs.
  • Pro:  I’m no longer waiting for them. Now I like ALL THE SONGS! “Frosty the snowman, was a jolly happy soul…”
  • Con: I have no legitimate excuse to run away from everyone else to do a one-on-one talk.
  • Pro:  People still totally understand when you randomly disappear recovering from lost love. Or just leave for any reason. People are tiring for an introvert! And you now have more time to enjoy the holiday with family!

May you all have excellent holidays ahead of you! Merry, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, A very festive Kwanzaa to those that celebrate, and Happy Holidays to all the rest! And, of course, a Happy New Year to boot! This is my blog, and so until Christmas is over, I sign off! God bless!

I Love You Guys!

I don’t even know what I’m doing, but apparently I somehow got a record amount of views from not even posting a blog. That was totally awesome. You guys are awesome! (I use guys as a collective term, you ladies are guys in my mind, too. I refer to males as dudes.)

So I decided in my happiness to make a blog about happiness, and the random things that make me happy. These are not tiered, they’re just a list.

  • Jesus lizards (because running on water is cool)
  • Jesus (as I don’t think its a problem to be proud of your religion, as long as you’re not a punk about it! 🙂 )
  • Munchkin cats
  • The Internet
  • Cupcakes
  • Gory Horror Movies (c-c-combo breaker!)
  • Fire!! 😀
  • Anime
  • Friends who try to understand even if they don’t fully
  • Cheese sauce (I PUT IT ON EVERYTHING)
  • did I mention Christmas?
  • Neon
  • Jiujitsu
  • Dragons
  • More fire! 😀
  • Chimeras
  • Bonfires (separate, I swear)
  • Tacos!
  • Food in general
  • Family

And that’s about all I can think of off the top of my head right now. Ending on a very strange note, I have come up with a super-new creature for the novel (see the Facebook for more info) called Togs and Froads. Yes, they do look like frogs and toads, but I also mixed in a little fantasy and a little chameleon too. So they can perch on shoulders, have longer tails, and can camouflage. Seems good to me! And have some weird as heck noises that they make. What are your opinions?!

Good evening, my friends! Be excellent to each other!

I’m A Poet and I Know It

Okay, maybe that’s not fully true. I can’t really call myself a poet per se, because I just don’t do it that often. I tend to do it as a side thing, outside of my prose, and I still have a lot of kinks to work out in my style. Gaining a style would be nice, too, but I can set that aside for later.

Have Yourself a Heavy Metal Christmas

I like Christmas, I’ll admit. I like Christmas a lot, and perhaps for a metal lover as well that may not make a whole lot of sense, but I tend to make it work. I think perhaps the very best example of this is Gothic Christmas by Nightwish, a song all about the metal side of Christmas. If you have not yet heard the beauty of this sure-to-be-considered-a-hymn classic, look it up. It’s beautiful.

In the meantime, I am really quite excited to be heading home for the holidays as of tomorrow. As much as I love the school that I go to, the roommates that I have and the fellowship of my fellow man, I also love my nieces, brothers and sisters to death. So there’s that. And yet, I have but one final trial to pass through before I should return home.

You see, the person I am riding back home with is… a hip-hop fan.

Now I myself have nothing against hip-hop, depending on the sort of hip-hop we are talking about. I have nothing against hip-hop lovers, as my brother is one and he’s pretty awesome. However…


Which means that we will be listening to the likes of One Direction, Kesha, Demi Lovato and the like as we return to the cold barren wasteland of New York, seconded only by the cold barren wasteland of Canada. And I know Canada. My mother is from Canada and used to bring us up every season. Trust me, there is a reason that next to nobody lives there, even with all the nice people.

So due to this arrangement I will probably spontaneously combust into a ball of flames before we even get to Binghamton. Hopefully not, as that would mean all my friends would miss me and that my book would never get finished. Sadness abounds.

Since this blog is also about the novel, I will finish up on a slight bit about the book. We are going to finish talking about… swords. There isn’t a much higher form of awesomeness in the world of gothic fantasy than epic swords. The very first sword we are going to discuss is Enlightener, which for its look may be a more Christmas-y sort of thing to discuss. Here are the stats, which if you decide not to read, well then, we’ll end this off with a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
